"TireBlast TM" Canadian tire verging on unicornian claims

Nitrogen tire inflation
Improves fuel economy
Increases tire life
Less loss of tire pressure helps prevent uneven tire wear
Reduces wheel corrosion
Tires run cooler adding tire life

Then they sum it all up in a sentence just for "clarity"

"Nitrogen tire filling will increase safety and reduce operating costs, while improving the performance of the vehicle."

$6.95 per tire.

All that for just 6.95? Such a bargain!!1! So how to they get all the old horrible wasteful regular 78% nitrogen air out completely? They must pull a 100% vacuum before right? right?

The biggest reason they left out: Avoid those terrible tire fires you have heard so much about.

Anyone wish to do the cost/benefit analysis and return period?
